Pini est fini

Black with pink pinstripe jacket from this pattern.

It's a bit shorter than I was expecting, and as I made it out of stretch poly as a wearable muslin, it's difficult to get a crisp pressed finish. It doesn't help that I use a self timer, and after placing the camera, checking where I should stand, and rushing to pose, I always end up sort of crumpled, facings a-go-go. I actually think I like it better now that I see it in photos, I thought it was even boxier than this when looking in the mirror.
I didn't end up lining it, because I'm not sure how much wear I'll get out of it, and hey, I'm lazy.

Patterns Patterns Patterns Patterns!

The pattern stashes swell, thanks to the lovely Lisa's ebay store 'Special Patterns for Special Days'.
